Earrings: Kate Spade (buy here)
Happy Saturday! I finally got the Banana Republic x Marimekko kivet skirt and it definitely lives up to all the hype. I knew I wanted it the second I received the flyer in the mail. Big and bold polka dots? Yes please! See it on Vicky and the midi version on Wendy.
It’s almost identical to my gingham full skirt (see here). The waist runs big – 13″ across. I’ll have take it in if I want to wear it on my natural or high waist. I have it held up by my bow belt for this post.
This Kate Spade bag is a recent buy from the half-yearly sale at Nordstrom. I originally wanted the larger version but since this was on sale, I thought I’d give it a try. I think this will be easier to carry on the weekends as a cross body style.
First off, I adore the limoncello color (available in beige and black – white is still full price). It’s perfect for Spring and Summer and the shade of yellow is spot on. The leather is pebbled and very soft. The only concern I have is that if I wear it with denim, the leather will be stained. I’ll have to be very careful and pay close attention.
Measurements: 9.5″ tall x 10″ wide x 3″ deep
It looked really small out of the box but when I put it on, it’s actually a pretty decent size. It’s larger than most of my cross body purses and fits everything with plenty of room left. It has a zip top closure which is important because I don’t like my contents exposed or the fear of it falling out while I’m out and about. The shoulder strap is adjustable and removable. The strap length is perfect on the last hole – no need to punch extra holes if you are similar in height (5′ tall).
